Hi,

Hope someone can help me with this;

I can mount these shares without a problem while the system is running.

If I unmount them and then add the applicable lines to /etc/fstab and run "mount -a", the action is successful.

# Network Share: Physical machine
//llabmw7/d /home/[username]/Desktop/shareP cifs credentials=/home/[username]/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm,_netdev 0 0

# Network Share: Virtual machine
//DC1/share /home/[username]/Desktop/share cifs credentials=/home/[username]/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm,_netdev 0 0

* GENTOO system is virtual and running on vm workstation 10

The problems start when I reboot GENTOO - after POST runlevel3, the system errors with "mount error 101 blablabla"

I've had a look round the net & nothing I've come across has solved the problem. I'm still new to GENTOO and Linux in general.

What would be the best practice when it comes to NET shares?

Thanks in advance

Network is unreachable at that point :)
Can you post "rc-update show" ?

I just booted of a live Gentoo ISO and mounted the VM system; then i commented out the additional net shares, rebooted the system and everything was fine.

Some users have suggested that i build a scripted and place it into /etc/local.d/ - so on login the scripted is run mounting the shares needed.

this is more of a work around than a fix, but it does the job i suppose

Here's the output regarding the "rc-update show"

Code:
gentoo_vm XXXXX # rc-update show

Can we get the real blablabla part?

I haven't been able to find a solution regarding the original question, but think it lies somewhere in the topic - "restructuring the rc boot order" - in such a way, that the network stack boots up before the fstab config; just speculation though and haven't pursued this avenue yet.

Work-around: solution

Create a script file in the following location "/etc/local.d/" that looks something like the below:

#!/bin/bash
#
# Network Share: Physical machine
SERVER_IP="***.***.***.***"
HOSTNAME="hostname1"
SHARE_NAME="d"
CREDENTIALS="/home/[username]/.smbcredentials"
DOMAIN="WORKGROUP"
sudo mount //hostname1/d -o credentials=$CREDENTIALS,dom=$DOMAIN /home/[username]/Desktop/shareP
#
# Network Share: Virtual machine
SERVER_IP="***.***.***.***"
HOSTNAME="hostname2"
SHARE_NAME="share"
CREDENTIALS="/home/[username]/.smbcredentials"
DOMAIN=DOMAIN.DOMAIN"
sudo mount //hostname2/share -o credentials=$CREDENTIALS,dom=$DOMAIN /home/[username]/Desktop/share

Now create a file ".smbcredentials" in example location - "/home/[username]/" with the following credentials needed for each share:

# Local Account:
username=[username]
password=**************

# Domain Account:
username=[domain\username]
password=**************

The specified username must be an NTFS account name either local or domain orientated.

Now make sure "local" is started in "rc" by running the following command:

gentoo_vm # rc-update add local default

gentoo_vm # rc

Good to go!
